Dr Mahathir Mohammad said Malaysia, Pakistan and Turkey have agreed to take steps to explain the true picture of Islam to the outside world in an effort to eradicate its ties to the terrorism.

Prime Minister Dr Mahathir said this was decided after the discussion with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan outside the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

We talk about the problems of Muslims and the Islamic State, there are numerous reports made on Islam and Muslims do not conform true teachings of Islam, Malaysian PM said.

Speaking to the media at the end of his trip to attend UNGA, the Malaysian Prime Minister said that the oblique view was accepted as true, while Islam was not a violent religion.

We think that an effort must be made by all three countries to explain about Muslims, so  there will be no more confusion, then we will no longer be accused of a religion that promotes terrorism, he said.

Dr Mahathir said that the move will be made in collaboration with bodies such as the state’s information department.

In a recent Twitter account, Imran Khan said the three countries agreed to set up an English-language channel to fight Islamophobia and explain about the Islam.

Addressing the meetings with investors and Business Councils, the Malaysian Premier said that they were generally curious about the situation in Malaysia and the policies of the government.

Malaysia is still committed to foreign policy for the betterment of all countries, he added.

Dr M said that the investors also questioned about Malaysia’s views on China and seemed impressed by the country’s ability to reduce the cost of the East Coast Railroad project.

“It seems that other countries with similar problems are doing nothing, so perhaps what we are doing will encourage other countries with a lot of debt with China to try to reduce their debt”, he said.

Dr Mahathir said the government would invite specific individuals interested in their advice on the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC).
